H.U.B.O.B. (or Help Us Balance Our Budget) is pronounced “HOO-BOB” and said with gusto at our church! The H.U.B.O.B. team helps raise money for our church with different fundraising events and opportunities throughout the year. Anyone can join our team! You can volunteer for a single project or help out with multiple projects.

These events offer the opportunity to don fancy clothes and enjoy a gourmet meal prepared by our own culinary masters served on the finest china and crystal! From the dinner menu of the S.S. Titanic to a Victorian era High Tea, these events bring our congregation together to share a unique and delicious meal and Help Us Balance Our Budget!.
Scrip Gift Card Fund Raiser
 
Throughout the year, H.U.B.O.B. provides everyone the opportunity to purchase gift cards for their favorite retail and grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations and more. You have seen Marion Kleiner in Fellowship Hall with the sign up forms. Here is how this program works:
 
You buy a scrip gift card through your church’s scrip program. You’ll pay the full face value, but you’ll earn an immediate rebate percentage for the church that’s typically between 3% and 18% depending on the retailer. Then you use that gift card on your normal purchases.
 
So as you shop at the places you regularly do with our gift cards, we get a percentage back on that card. So if you buy a $100 Cheesecake Factory card which has a 5% rebate, the church gets $5 and you get the full face value of the card to spend at the restaurant. You’re not spending extra time or money— it’s just earning for our church!  With over 700 retailers to choose from, we have a card to suit every need!
 

AND it’s not just restaurants and retail stores! Use your gift cards at the pharmacy as you fill your prescriptions. The percentage rates for each retailer vary so ask about them when you purchase or CLICK HERE to view the full list.

Here is just a sample of the participating retailers you can purchase gift cards for. There are over 700 retailers in this program!gift-card-retailersy
(Please note: ShopRite and Foodtown are NOT part of the scrip program.  They work the same way but they are independent.  We receive a standard 5% for them and the cards are available in Fellowship Hall without placing a separate order.)
